AGA’s Citizen – Centric Reporting Initiative

In 2008, AGA surveyed the public on the effectiveness of government fiscal reporting. Eighty-nine percent said that, as taxpayers, they are entitled to transparent financial management information, and 57 percent said that government has an obligation to provide it. They further indicated that government is failing to meet its financial management reporting needs, and that poor performance has created a problem of trust between residents and their governments. The survey showed that governments need new innovative means of communication to overcome those challenges.

AGA’s citizen-centric reports are designed to help remedy this. The program is an easily adoptable reporting option for all governments, including guidelines for content, a design template and completed reports.

The AGA Citizen-Centric Government Reporting Initiative is steadily expanding. The U.S. Departments of the Interior and Defense as well as the U.S. Coast Guard have produced reports at the federal level. The states of Oregon, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee and Washington as well as cities and counties such as Saco, ME, Tallahassee, FL, Portland, OR, and Blount County, TN, have produced Citizen-Centric Reports to the benefit of their citizens. Many others are in the works.

We encourage you to take the initiative to work with your government employer or with the city, town or state where you live and persuade them to produce a similar report. AGA is ready and waiting to help with free consulting advice, a template and other tools to help you accomplish this goal. Please or call Susan Fritzlen at 800.AGA.7211 for more details.
